The tour difficulty is primarily a subjective factor, determined by different elements and from never equal situations.
The most important of them is the effort: the more the climbs are high, the more effort is made.
But climbs are not all the same: they can be more or less steep and of variable length.
To get an idea of how many climbs are waiting for you on a tour, you should check the "elevation gain uphill". The higher the "elevation gain uphill" is the higher the number of climbs you have to face.
Another element that can make a tour more or less difficult is the climate and in particular - in summer time - the exposure to the sun.
Doing the same path in autumn or spring with 20/25 degrees is completely different if done in summer with 35 degrees.
In addition to the temperature, even the humidity, the presence of shade and the road surface can increase (even in the worst cases) the difficulty of 20%.
For this reason, there is no a unique answer to the question 'how difficult is a course' is; everybody has its own parameters and sensations that also depend on your training level, so the difficulty index is considered an indicative value.
To help you choosing a guided tour, in addition to the degree of difficulty, we ranked the tours according to the following parameters: Landscape, Nature, Art and History.
The trail winds through panoramic paths from which you can admire some of the most beautiful landscapes of the Tuscan countryside.
The tour takes place predominantly in wooded areas or crosses areas of important naturalistic interest such as parks or nature reserves.
Art and history
During the tour you will find places of great historical and artistic interest such as medieval villages, abbeys, churches and castles.
San Gimignano is the undisputed star of this excursion, a medieval village that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to the characteristic architecture of its historic centre. On this tour we will create a ring, pedaling up and down the hills of San Gimignano, in the vineyards of Vernaccia, the olive groves and rows of cypress trees, without ever losing sight of the 16 towers of the world's most famous medieval hamlet.
Starting from locality San Donato, we will ride towards San Gimignano and after passing through the center of the old town we will continue our pleasant ride on a path that at every turn amazes us for the views that gives us over this medieval village.
At the end of the tour we will make a short visit to the Fattoria San Donato, where pampered by its friendly owners we will taste their fantastic wines, perhaps a bit tired but aware of having cycled in one of the most beautiful landscapes of Tuscany.
